The bees settle in

The new bees are slowly settling in and hive #2 was ready for a new box of empty frames.

We also added a few litres of sugar syrup to each hive to see if they want it.  There should be enough nectar available without feeding them, but It can help them build out new comb faster – which is a big advantage to a new hive.  Once the hives are established we will try to manage them without any feeding.
